Postpartum mom says dollar store toy is the best $5 she’s ever spent after a C-section

A postpartum mother revealed the secret weapon she wished she had for previous C-sections.

TikTok mom @amyal26 claimed that the life hack was so good that her “nurse literally showed her coworkers because she thought it was awesome.” The simple product only costs $5, and you may even be able to find it for less at the dollar store. If you haven’t guessed what it is yet, let’s just say it’s a useful but unexpected communication tool.

“This is the best $5 I ever spent and I wish I would have bought one for my other c-sections,” the video text wrote.

The mom was still in the hospital bed post-op, and her husband was asleep on the couch across from her. Luckily, she had a $5 trick up her sleeve. She whipped out a toy foam dart gun. To get her husband’s attention, she simply shot at him.

“Babe!” she said firing the toy gun. “Baby!”

“Yup?” he said, barely awake.

“I need help,” she told him.

It seemed TikTokers used different but similar methods to alert their husbands. The video racked up 6.6 million views.

“I had to call the nurse in because my husband was snoring so loud and he needed a little push to stop,” a user said.

“I threw a tennis ball the nurse left for my back at my husband when I was in labor. Got him right in the ribs first try and he popped right up,” another wrote.

“You’re nicer than me. I threw the call bell/remote. It had a cord, so I pulled it back and threw it again,” a TikToker replied.

“have mad respect for the nurse that gathered all the stuff that I’d thrown at my hubby after my c-sec,” someone added.

“I threw 3 pillows, a blanket, and a baby bottle at my husband and he still didn’t wake up,” a person commented.
